Artists spring into art
There may still be snow on the ground, but art is in full bloom at the Waupaca Area Public Library.
The Northeast Chapter of the Wisconsin Visual Artists opened its “Spring into Art” show Monday, April 15 in the library’s lower-level exhibit room.
The exhibit runs through Saturday, May 25 and officially ends with an artist reception at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 28.
The exhibit features two- and three-dimensional artwork created by members of the Wisconsin Visual Artists in various media.
The Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA) is a non-profit organization made up of visual artists working in a variety of media.
The organization, which traces its roots back to 1900, supports Wisconsin art and is committed to sharing the importance and value of art and its creation to the public.
The Northeast Chapter, one of three chapters for the organization, includes artists from the Green Bay and Fox Valley areas and Central and Northern Wisconsin.
Each chapter promotes, develops and encourages the creative visual arts in Wisconsin in a variety of ways, including periodic exhibitions throughout the state.
This is the first WVA exhibition in Waupaca in more than 10 years, and it features artists from the area.
The Waupaca Area Public Library provides cultural, historical and educational displays free to the general public.
